THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SENDS IN PHOTOS!
Take a picture of a recent Club ride? Accomplish something noteworthy on the bike?
Write a story? Share an anecdote?
Email me by Sunday night for consideration in that week's Club newsletter.
Best wishes to Curtis Tanaka. Get well soon!
Thanks to all who attended the Holiday Party.
And for those of you Club members who aren't "facebookers", here's a note from Doc Ernie Guzman:
Thanks to all BCCC members for helping me support LIGA International, the medical missions Heidi Heflin, my grown children and I volunteer for several times a year. The ball caps and sunglasses help the farm workers from the El Fuerte, Sinaloa surrounding areas who donâ€™t know to protect their eyes when out in the sun. The medical missions held in a clinic in that city and a local village provide all manner of free health care and surgeries for children and adults who have very little resources. Thanks to Ian Fulton for sparking this idea with the club.
If you missed the BCCC Holiday gathering yesterday, I can continue to collect used or new ball caps and sunglasses throughout the year, but club president, Jim Hannon and others suggested we might have a similar event before my June mission trip. If you would rather donate money directly you can do so at LIGAinternational.org
It was a wonderful evening and a great way to cap off what started out as a sad, anxious and disturbing weekend. I was happy to report on the simply miraculous results of our rider brother Curtis surviving his heart event through the team effort of Mary Lynn Mosig, Mike Mosig and me and the emotional and spiritual support of all who did and did not witness it. During my visit with him yesterday he told me to thank all of you for that support.

Take a few minutes, and logon to your Club profile. Is your information current? How about your emergency contact information? Review and update now - just in case.
And, while you're at it - do you carry contact information on you when you ride? There are several commercially available bracelets/dog tags, etc. OR - a simple card in your wallet. Names, addresses and phone numbers of one, or more, people that you want contacted, should you ever not be able to speak for yourself.
Do it. Do it now.
A CHRISTMAS POEM
He rides. He drills. And he writes, too. From the pen of Doctor Mike Mosig:
Nobody knows if Heaven has beer.
So, people like me say that's reason to share a brew while we're still here.
To our recent departed Julian, who's already up there.
We raise a glass and toast in his honor, to show love and that we care.
To Curtis, thank God he's still here!
To him, we also raise a glass, and toast in his honor, and rejoice with the good news that we hear.
And to our BCCC friendship, the reason we're here, we raise a glass to toast to all that with Hors Category Holiday Cheer.
